Yes, because in that case your notebook tries to reach your DNS server
at your workplace, and times out.

You also should choose another domain for home use, is
registered in the internet, so there are replies for that, also for a
root name server its a legit domain, so it forwards the query to the
approp. NS in the net, and there you get some results back you surely
will not want to get.

Or you run named as a caching-only NS, and add nameserver
first place in /etc/resolv.conf.

something like batcave.home or so will be fine...
